original page with bad link
This page also has incorrect CSS in the form:

<STYLE>
<!--
.help TD {color:#000000; font-family :verdana; font-size : 12px;}
.help .download {color:#FFFFFF; font-family :verdana; font-size : 10px;}
.help .header2 {color:#CD3100; text-decoration: none; font-weight :bold;
font-family :verdana; font-size : 16px;}
.help .feedsubhead  {color:#000000; font-weight :bold; font-family :verdana;
font-size : 15px; font-weight:"bold";}
.help .feedsubhead2  {color:#000000; font-weight :bold; font-family :verdana;
font-size : 14px}
.help .helplink {color:#333366; text-decoration: none; font-family :verdana;
font-size : 12px;}
 -->
</STYLE>


what was actually intended was 
<STYLE>
<!--
.help TD {color:#000000; font-family :verdana; font-size : 12px;}
.help, .download {color:#FFFFFF; font-family :verdana; font-size : 10px;}
.help, .header2 {color:#CD3100; text-decoration: none; font-weight :bold;
font-family :verdana; font-size : 16px;}
.help, .feedsubhead  {color:#000000; font-weight :bold; font-family :verdana;
font-size : 15px; font-weight:"bold";}
.help, .feedsubhead2  {color:#000000; font-weight :bold; font-family :verdana;
font-size : 14px}
.help, .helplink {color:#333366; text-decoration: none; font-family :verdana;
font-size : 12px;}
 -->
</STYLE>

fixed version of page

Note there is still a differnce between how Mozilla and IE display the links on
this page. IE will apply the hover style and Mozilla does not.
Eric, could you take a look at this page and the other bbc bugs and give us the
benefit of your analysis. Thanks, /bc
